Cornerstone Charter Academy to be Honored for Public Service at Multiplying Good Jefferson Awards in Washington, D.C

Cornerstone Charter Academy Students In Action Team will be honored alongside Von Miller, Patagonia, and unsung community heroes

BELLE ISLE, FL. (June 13, 2019)–Multiplying Good, the nation’s leading nonprofit focused on fueling personal growth and leadership through public service, today announced that Cornerstone Charter Academy Students In Action Team will be honored for their service work at its annual Jefferson Awards alongside Von Miller, Denver Broncos’ linebacker/founder Von’s Vision, and Patagonia, designer of outdoor clothing and gear/environmental advocate.

The Awards, now in its 47th year, were co-created by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Senator Robert Taft, Jr., and Sam Beard. This year’s event will be held on Tuesday, June 18, 2019 in Washington, D.C. and is the nation’s largest convening of individuals committed to public service. The Belle Isle students will join 150 grassroots and youth Jefferson Award recipients from across the country.

Multiplying Good’s Students In Action program concentrates on building confidence and developing key skills for youth leaders through an extensive support structure encompassing training, technology, and a continuum of caring adults.

The Service Learning Dedicated Ducks, Cornerstone Charter Academy’s Students In Action team, will be recognized for their dance marathon, Quack-a-thon and their year-long fundraiser and which raised $35,000. The money will benefit Miracle Children, an initiative of the Children’s Miracle Network which helps prematures babies and critically ill children. The Service Learning Dedicated Ducks were inspired to choose this cause by the Shield’s Family, a local family who has two children that are part of the Miracle Children initiative enrolled at Cornerstone Charter Academy. The Dedicated Ducks from Cornerstone Charter Academy, under the leadership of Faculty Advisor Linda Reyes, have participated in the Students In Action program since the 2015-2016 school year.

“By providing a prestigious platform that recognizes outstanding, selfless acts of service, we motivate our award recipients to do more and we inspire others to take action in service to others, creating a ripple of good,” said Hillary Schafer, Multiplying Good CEO. “The youth, grassroots, corporations, and notable national award recipients who join us at the D.C. Jefferson Awards represent the very best of our country, people who have dedicated themselves to serving others. By bringing them together and elevating their work, we inspire positive impact in communities nationwide.”

Following a rebrand in February, which put a greater emphasis on the organization’s overall mission and programming to inspire people of all ages to get involved in service, Multiplying Good continues to pay tribute to its roots by recognizing remarkable service with its twice-annual ceremonies in Washington, D.C. and New York.

Multiplying Good will honor Cornerstone Charter Academy Students In Action team alongside the following national figures for their public service efforts and initiatives:

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller will be honored with the award for Outstanding Public Service in Professional Sports. Miller’s commitment to Denver youth through Von’s Vision provides low-income children with the eye care and corrective eyewear they need to be their best in the classroom and in life. His organization works with partners to donate their time, optometric and ophthalmological services, and frames and prescriptions to benefit thousands of children annually.

On behalf of Patagonia, the company’s environmental advocate Avi Garbow will accept the award for Outstanding Public Service by a Corporation. As an American outdoor apparel company, Patagonia has long been on the leading edge of sustainability in the industry. The organization has donated more than $100 million to nonprofit environmental groups and conservation efforts since its founding in 1973. Through its corporate venture capital fund, Tin Shed Ventures, Patagonia also invests in start-ups that offer solutions to the environmental crisis. These include solar projects, innovative solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save water and regenerate soil health, and circular economy models. When possible, Patagonia will partner with the businesses in which it invests, such as Yerdle, which helped Patagonia launch its Worn Wear business, which promises the company will produce and sell quality goods, repair them when needed, recycle them free of charge, and even buy back functional gear in an effort to prolong product use and reduce the company’s carbon, waste, and water footprint.

Miami Native Rodrigo Medinilla Completes Round 3 of Scripps National Spelling Bee

Original Article at: NBC 6

Twelve-year-old Rodrigo Medinilla’s future isn’t quite spelled out yet, but he may just “bee” on his way to student stardom.

The Miami native, a 7th grader at Pinecrest Academy Charter Middle School, is competing in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, one of the oldest spelling competitions in the country. It’s Medinilla’s first time participating in the bee, but the South Florida student is already moving forward.

“I worked hard to get here, and I’m going to keep working hard, because I want to win, obviously,” he said. “[But] if I don’t, it’ll be fine. I got here, and that’s the greatest part of the experience.”

Medinilla completed round three of the competition Wednesday morning. His correct spelling of the word “ecclesial” (meaning: relating to the church) is launching him into round four of the competition.

Now I have a big chance of going to the semifinals, with God’s help,” he said. “It’s been really fun, it’s been nerve-wracking because now we’re on stage in front of everyone else, but it gives me a weird sense of security,” he said

And Medinilla isn’t just well-versed with words. His friends and family call him a “human calculator” for his ability to solve complex math problems in his head. The South Florida student was also a contestant on NBC’s “Genius Junior” in May 2018.

On Wednesday, Sen. Marco Rubio invited Medinilla to a private tour of the U.S. Capitol and White House.

“It’s just amazing because the fruits of my labor, as I would call it, have caused this, and also the generosity of Marco Rubio,” he said.

Other words Medinilla has spelled correctly on his journey through the spelling bee? Potash, impetuous, koan, verboten, maladroit, fusi, acervation and annelid.

Two high-school seniors from Miami-Dade County chosen as U.S. Presidential Scholars

Two high school seniors from Miami-Dade County were among a select group of 161 students nationwide chosen as 2019 U.S. Presidential Scholars.

Nina Ahmadi, a senior at the Design & Architecture Senior High School (DASH) in Miami, and Mercedes F. Ferreira-Dias, a senior at Mater Lakes Academy High School in Miami Gardens, were announced Tuesday as members of the 55th class of U.S. Presidential Scholars. They were among seven students in Florida honored for their accomplishments in academics, the arts, and career and technical education fields.

Ahmadi and Ferreira-Dias were selected as U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts.

“Being named a Presidential Scholar is a remarkable honor these students will carry with them throughout their lives,” said Alberto Carvalho, the superintendent of Miami-Dade County Public Schools, in a statement. “They were selected not only for their academic achievements, but for the hours these student leaders devoted to improving their community, fostering values as they helped others. We are elated that Miami-Dade students are among those being recognized nationally.”

The Presidential Scholars program is not a scholarship, but a “recognition program.”

Students chosen as U.S. Presidential Scholars receive a free trip to Washington, D.C., in June and receive a medallion at a ceremony sponsored by the White House. During their visit, the students will be given opportunities to “wrestle with issues that concern America and the world; attend recitals, receptions and ceremonies held in their honor; and visit area museums and monuments,” according to the program’s web page.

More than 5,200 candidates qualified for the 2019 awards, which are determined by performance on the College Board SAT and ACT exams or via nominations from Chief State School officers, other organizations or the National YoungArts Foundation’s nationwide YoungArts competition.

In 2018, three students from Miami-Dade County were selected to be U.S. Presidential Scholars, including two students from New World School of the Arts in Miami and one from DASH.

The recipients are made up of one man and one woman from each state, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, and U.S. families living abroad — as well as 15 “chosen at-large,” 20 Scholars in the Arts and 20 Scholars in Career and Technical Education.

The 2019 award ceremony will be June 23.

“I want to congratulate this year’s class of Presidential Scholars on their achievement both inside of the classroom and out,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos in a statement. “Their hard work and commitment to excellence, no matter what challenge they are tackling, will serve them well throughout their lifelong learning journeys. I have no doubt that many of tomorrow’s leaders are among this year’s class of Scholars.”

US News & World Report Ranks Academica—Serviced Schools Among Florida’s Best 2019 High Schools

US News & World Report Ranks Academica—Serviced Schools Among Florida’s Best 2019 High Schools

Academica Congratulates International Studies Charter High School for being ranked the top charter high school in Florida

Miami, FL – April 30, 2019– US News & World Report ranked ISCHS as Florida’s best Charter High School for 2019. The International Studies Charter High School (ISCHS) awards dual diplomas — American and European. Students learn in English, Spanish, Italian, and French. It ranked as America’s 11th Best Charter High School and also ranked as Florida’s 4th Best High School. Earning a 100% college-readiness score, ISCHS prepares students for advanced studies. Founded in 2004, ISCHS partners with Spain, Italy and France.

Academica is one of the nation’s most successful charter school service organizations. It supports ISCHS as well as 11 of the Top 100 Best High Schools in Florida. Twenty-five Academica-serviced schools received 2019 Best High School rankings. Of those schools, 23 in Florida, one in Nevada and one in Texas.

Two Doral Academy charter high schools ranked in the Top 50 High Schools in Florida. Two Mater Academy high schools also ranked in the Top 50, as did Somerset Arts Conservatory and Somerset Academy High School in Pembroke Pines.

US News & World Report studied 23,000 public high schools in all 50 states and DC to rank the best. The rankings focus on college readiness using student performance in six categories. They are results on AP and IB exams, math and reading scores, and success with low-income and minority students. Although charter high schools represent 10% of the country’s 26,000 public high schools, they comprise 23% of the top 100 public high schools. Within the top 5 percent of ranked schools, more than 18 percent are charter schools.

Charter school students continue to outperform peers in traditional public schools

Students in Florida charter schools are outperforming their peers in traditional schools in nearly every category according to the Florida Department of Education’s annual charter school performance report, released today.

The analysis used 2017-18 school year data to examine the average performance of charter school students and traditional public school students in terms of grade level achievement, learning gains and achievement gap. Data included in the report, based on more than 4.2 million test scores, was derived from student performance on the Florida Standards Assessments for English language arts and mathematics as well as statewide assessments for science and social studies.

The achievement section of the report measured the percentage of students who scored a Level 3 or above on the statewide assessment. A score of 3 is considered passing or at grade level. In 63 of 77 comparisons, students enrolled in charter schools demonstrated higher rates of grade level performance.

The achievement gap section measured the gap between white students and African-American students and white students and Hispanic students in English language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. The achievement gap was lower for charter school students in 19 of 22 comparisons.

The learning gains section of the report compared the percentage of students in charter schools making learning gains against the percentage of students in traditional public schools making learning gains by subject, grade level and subgroup. The percentage of students making learning gains was higher in charter schools in 88 of 96 comparisons.

The report further showed that in comparisons of achievement and learning gains, students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch in charter schools performed better than low-income students in district-managed schools in 93 percent of the comparisons.

Overall performance as measured by school grades showed that 47 percent of graded charter schools earned As compared to 28 percent of graded traditional schools.

The annual report is a coordinated effort between the Office of Independent Education and Parental Choice and the Bureau of Evaluation and Reporting in the Division of Accountability, Research and Measurement.
